When the moon hits your eyes like a French camembert pie, that’s amore…! Ok…ok…that’s a little bit cheesy - but not as cheesy as this all day experience learning how to make 5 different soft cheeses!

Get ready while we take you on a sensational adventure as you transform fresh cow’s milk into a soft rinded cheese wheel of creamy, white, gooey camembert goodness ready to crown your next cheese board as your guests arrive. Will you eat yours freshly matured with a sliver of citrus jam on an artisan cracker?…Or choose to leave it to ripen slightly pungently, enjoyed with a chilled verdelho, a side of muscatels and a circle of friends…?

Fancy a blue camembert? You’ll learn how to make that too. Mild and refined, or strongly veined…you can now design your own, as you’ll know exactly how to create the cheese you love to eat! Picture yourself serving your next entrée of pasta rolled in a steaming meld of creamy camembert cheese with bacon...or pillows of fresh gnocchi swimming in a blue camembert cream sauce, infused with confit garlic, crispy sage and roasted walnuts… Guests arriving without notice? Wrap a wheel of your own artisan made camembert in filo and bake ‘til crispy, flaky and golden, and listen to the crowd talk over the crackling sounds of filo mopping up the very last of that hot gooey goodness until the last morsel is gone. You’ll love the way you made it yourself.

Too much to handle? We'll spoil you for morning and afternoon tea breaks and lunch. 

Then re-join with the other like-minded cheese lovers of Perth as we teach you how to make your own mascarpone, cream cheese and quark at home too. Your dips, spreads, tiramisu and cheesecakes will reach a decadent new Masterchef level. All preservative free, and made just how you like it! No more wondering how you can make cheese at home…You’ll confidently be making your very own cheeses the moment you leave the class, and planning your next dinner party to share your sensational gourmet creations.

This is one of our most popular courses so don't miss out...Book now!

I’ve taken one cheese making course before (a year ago in Victoria) and have been dabbling with simple cheese since. This course with CheeseMaker was amazing and made me realise how much I did not know. The expertise was exceptional and the easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions were great. Lucy and Tanya were obviously drawing on many years of experience and could explain the process (& science!) very clearly. An absolute pleasure. Great learning and cooking environment as well. Delicious lunch and cheese samples. Highly recommended. I’ll be back!

Lucy & Tanya taught an amazing class! Everything was explained well and broken down into memorable steps. The lunch was delicious and our small group had a really great day. Would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning a new skill.
